Melbourne, Australia — January 31, 2003

A Round Table Solution (ARTS), the popular Adobe® Acrobat® third-party developer, has announced the release of its new Forms and Forms Data Format (FDF) data management tool. ARTS FDF Import lets you manage and extract data from FDF files and import the contents into virtually any database that supports ODBC.
